Trailer #2: Jennifer Lawrence in ‘Joy’, the Most David O. Russell Movie Ever

A second more detailed trailer for David O. Russell’s latest, Joy, has been released. It gives us more details, more exuberant flourishes, and more David O. Russell than anyone should be able to stand.

Here is the Joy trailer:

And here is the official synopsis:

JOY is the wild story of a family across four generations centered on the girl who becomes the woman who founds a business dynasty and becomes a matriarch in her own right. Betrayal, treachery, the loss of innocence and the scars of love, pave the road in this intense emotional and human comedy about becoming a true boss of family and enterprise facing a world of unforgiving commerce. Allies become adversaries and adversaries become allies, both inside and outside the family, as Joy’s inner life and fierce imagination carry her through the storm she faces. Jennifer Lawrence stars, with Robert De Niro, Bradley Cooper, Edgar Ramirez, Isabella Rossellini, Diane Ladd, and Virginia Madsen. Like David O. Russell’s previous films, Joy defies genre to tell a story of family, loyalty, and love.

It looks interesting, just like all of David O. Russell’s films, and I will forever support Silver Linings Playbook. That being said, Joy looks like it could be a crossroads for the filmmaker, either heightening his auteurism or sending him into the deep end of self parody.

Joy hits theaters this Christmas.
